What if human analysis, combined with machine learning, could advance the study of the universe? The U.S. Department of Energy awarded Fermilab scientist Brian Nord a $2.5 million Early Career Research Award to explore that possibility. Nord has envisioned a new hybrid data-analysis method to undertake the project. It integrates the strengths of artificial intelligence and interpretations of statistics in ways that could potentially advance the studies of cosmology.
From the DOE Office of Science, July 22, 2021: A video discussion with Energy Secretary Granholm and OE scientists highlighting climate science research and how DOE is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
A beam of particles is a very useful tool. It can diagnose a disease, destroy a tumor, improve a chip, clean up dirty drinking water, scan containers for suspicious content and do much more. In this video, Fermilab’s Sam Posen talks about accelerator research at Fermilab, a world leader in particle accelerator science and technology.
From Forbes, June 28,2021: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln highlights top applied research that has been funded by the federal government and the National Science Foundation.
The DOE’s Office of Science has selected two Fermilab scientists to receive the 2021 DOE Early Career Research Award, now in its 12th year. Farah Fahim and Brian Nord have received the prestigious award, which is designed to bolster the nation’s scientific workforce by providing support to exceptional researchers during the crucial early years.
An accountability drill will be held on April 8 beginning at 10 a.m. If you are a Fermilab employee and are working on April 8, you are required to respond when you receive the Everbridge message. Please respond “Onsite” only if you are physically on the Batavia site. If you are teleworking or working somewhere other than on the Batavia site, please respond with “Offsite.” Please note that this is only a drill.
